First Look: The Greatest Fall 2015

October 5th, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

For the new Fall/Winter 2015 issue, menswear magazine The Greatest takes as its theme heroes of all sorts, starting from the supremely graceful and athletic star ballet dancer Roberto Bolle, who graces the cover shot by Francesco Brigida and styled by Matteo Greco. A powerhouse lineup of models stars in the main fashion story within by Alessandro Dal Buoni and Greco, from longtime favorites like Ben Allen, Laurie Harding, and Tim Schuhmacher to newer faces Piero Mendez, Matt Doran, Charlie James, and Max Barczak in a youthful take on the season’s idiosyncratic designs. Robbie McKinnon finds himself in expressive sportswear on the beach in a feature by Paolo Zerbini and Greco, while breakout faces George Koh and Lucas Satherley are found in suiting lounging in a sparse field photographed by Clare Shilland and styled by Hanna Kelifa. Mark Kean and Jérôme André contribute a thoughtful vision of fresh youth, and the same quiet introspection can be seen in an accompanying short film, directed by Luca De Santis and starring Florian DesBiendras and Carolina Gonzales. Interviews with Italo Zucchelli of Calvin Klein, Paul Smith, and Bolle’s fellow ballet legend Marie-Agnès Gillot round out the issue, a reminder that there is never a shortage of talents to look up to. Take an exclusive first look at the issue, out today, below.

Spring Clean

May 12th, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

Spring may have just barely started, but Spanish menswear magazine Varón Magazine is already looking ahead to the rest of the year, with a Summer/Autumn issue celebrating rebirth and renewal, out now. Coverboy Julius Gerhardt makes a striking comeback, fresh off walking for Prada exclusively in January after coming out of a life-threatening coma. Piczo opens the issue with a celebration of British designers, from upstarts like Craig Green and J.W. Anderson to old standbys Paul Smith and Vivienne Westwood, styled by Hugo Lavín on Simon Fitskie.

Editorials by Lonny Spence and Yann Faucher lead into Autumn 2015 previews by Nacho Pinedo and Mark Kean, while interviews with Marni’s Consuelo Castiglione, Zegna’s Stefano Pilati, and Pablo Coppola of Bally add some heft. Rising designer Lou Dalton expounds on the merits of apprenticeships, and Frances Corner, head of the London College of Fashion, insists on the value of higher education—even in an age of rising tuition fees and diminishing job prospects. Varón has always celebrated the unconventional—previous cover stars include flamenco dancer Yiyo and parfumier Ben Gorham—and this tenth issue proves no different, with a profile on Jon-Allan Butterworth, the paracyclist who lost an arm in a rocket attack in Iraq and went on to win three silver medals at the Paralympic Games in London. Take an exclusive first look at the issue below.

Spring Forward

March 24th, 2015 |Posted by jonathan

Hercules Universal celebrates the “Endless Affair” with their latest issue, offering a clean and crisp vision of Spring/Summer 2015. Four black-and-white covers kick it off, featuring English actor Jeremy Irvine by Ben Weller, French rocker Marlon Magnée by Hedi Slimane, and models Alessio Pozzi and Austin Scoggin by, respectively, Daniel Riera and Bruno Staub. Social-media sensation Lucky Blue Smith stars in a vivid feature by Giampaolo Sgura, while Pozzi and Arran Sly look sharp in summer whites by Riera. Felix Gesnouin stars in an introspective story from Philippe Vogelenzang, and another editorial by Sgura peeks at the artistic life.

Staub’s collections feature, shot on Fire Island in gorgeous monochrome, features a passel of summer-ready Soul Artist Management faces, including Doug Pickett, Blaine Cook, Sean Harju, Brian Shimansky, Henry Watkins and Cory Bond, all of whom also appear in an accompanying video, premiering here on Models.com. Take a look at an exclusive preview of the issue below.

In Black & White

April 24th, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

Spring may be better-known as the season for bright prints and colors, but the latest issue of upscale menswear magazine Varon Magazine makes a very convincing argument for the purity and sharp beauty of clean black-and-white. Ben Gorham, founder of the exclusive Byredo fragrance collection, stars in the sharp cover story, lensed by Lonny Spence with styling by Varon’s fashion director Hugo Lavín, while the rest of the magazine is filled with many of the industry’s top new faces in a range of the season’s top designs. Bright young Brits Matthew Bell and Tom Gaskin can be seen in the main collections story, photographed by co editor in chief Nacho Pinedo and dressed by Lavín, while Elliot Vulliod is the centerpiece of a feature on the idiosyncratic designer Umit Benan. But for all its celebration of the here and now, the issue offers a sneak peek ahead as well, with an exclusive preview of Fall 2014 from rising British designer Craig Green captured by Piczo with a clinical austerity softened by gentle portraits that add just the right touch of sensitive emotion. Check out their Instagram page for more beautiful visuals.

Club Tropicana

April 1st, 2014 |Posted by jonathan

This has been, in many ways, the winter of our discontent, with biting snow and freezing winds long outstaying their welcome into April. Spanish menswear bible Hercules Universal offers a rejuvenating missive from the sunlit Iberian peninsula with their latest issue, which comes with the promising title “Club Tropicana” stamped on its electric blue cover. Otto Pierce lounges on the pristine sands of Mexico’s Riviera Maya in Paola Kudacki’s saturated cover feature, wearing some of the season’s brightest pieces styled by Francesco Sourigues. Bruno Staub captures new face Carter in Kim Jones’ all-American, California-dreaming designs in a Louis Vuitton feature with fashion by Miguel Arnau. Dan Glaser visits a Provençal paradise in an architectural study of the minimalist G House in Bonnieux, a gleaming box of glass and concrete set in the woods of the French countryside. There is a hint of darkness amongst the light as well, in the edgy video accompanying the cover story, which finds Pierce splashing around in the dark surf in just a pair of Saint Laurent leather pants, in Daniel Riera’s Fall 2014 preview, which captures Jason Anthony in tough looks chosen by Sourigues from a season that seems far away but will be here all too soon. But, rather than diminishing the glow, these shadows serve only to add some sharpening contrast to an issue that, to finish off that line from Shakespeare, is otherwise “made glorious summer by this sun.”
